C.H.A.M.P.S was founded in 2003 by the Georgia Sheriff's Association to help children and teens lead a successful and happy life by learning to make good choices and deal with the ever-changing challenges of our communities and the world we live in. C.H.A.M.P.S. stands for "Choosing Healthy Activities and Methods Promoting Safety." Sheriff Stevie Thomas has brought C.H.A.M.P.S. to our 5th graders through our Certified C.H.A.M.P.S. Instructors.
Some of the lessons we are covering this year are: Peer Pressure, Bullying, Internet Safety, Drugs and Alcohol, ATV, and Hunter Safety. Our theme this year is "Be a Role Model". We have many stories of people overcoming great difficulties to make a difference. Please email me if you have any questions or would like more information about C.H.A.M.P.S.

4-H is designed to go hand-in-hand with what is happening in the 5th-grade classroom. Officers are elected for the year and will be responsible for leading the monthly 4-H meetings. Project Achievement is the major promotion of the program this year. Through oral communication, the students will be encouraged to think in an organized way, develop oral communication skills, and compete with their peers in a way that is non-threatening and fun. The remainder of the lessons for the year will come from the Agri-science curriculum and will enhance the fifth-grade science lessons.

• Maintain a school-wide perspective of issues;
• Regularly participate in school council meetings;
• Participate in information and training programs;
• Act as a link between the school council and the community;
• Encourage the participation of parents and others within the school community; and
